In response to royf19's comment:
And sorry, yogafriend, but I like Asia. I was in high school when Asia was formed and I enjoyed their stuff. Their songs today bring me back to my high school days. On the other hand, is it really a short-lived band. The original run produced three studio albums between '81 and '85, so in that case, they're short-lived. But they also produced nine or 10 albums since 1992 with various lineups.
Roy, my comment / question re: ASIA had nothing to do with quality, it was in regard to how short-lived they are/were, and they aren't. They had a short hiatus, but otherwise, have never stopped playing and are still playing to this day. Otherwise, I have nothing against them. :)
They don't fit the thread, that's all. They permanently reunited, with (some) original band mates. It's actually not easy to think up short-lived bands that left a mark; that's why I thought it was a good topic. If we included bands that have re-formed multiple times, the thread would take on a totally different meaning. I've edited my comment to Roger to be clear that I wasn't making a crack about the band; it was re: the life span of the band, and pertinence to the topic.
Ah -- my mistake. I agree about them not fitting the criteria. I was thinking that they were short-lived at first because it seemed like it was a short span when you would here them on the radio. But I also knew that they were around for many years in one form or another so I figured they didn't fit.
